We offer three types of valuation, including two printed versions.

First is the standard Insurance Valuation for replacement purposes. This is the price one would expect to pay at full retail from a dealer.

Second is a Market Appraisal. This type of valuation differs inasmuch as it is used to determine a value for estate purposes, such as in a matrimonial split or a deceased estate and is based on what one would realistically expect to realise on the open market.

Finally, we offer an in gallery appraisal. If you wish to discuss the potential value of your painting with our experts, please arrange an appointment through our gallery staff.

Alternatively you may wish to leave the work with us in the gallery for appraisal at the next visit of the valuer.

Written valuations can be presented as either: individual certificates for each artwork (for collections of less the four), or in the form of a bound catalogue for larger collections.

Could YOUR painting could be the next big find?

A small unsigned oil was purchased in a Northland junk shop for $5.

After careful research the painting was attributed by Fine Art Society New Zealand director, Grant Bezett, to the important Canadian artist Lawren S. Harris (1885 - 1970).

Following publicity prior to the auction this attribution was supported by the recognised Canadian authorities on the work of Lawren Harris.

The interest generated by the story of the painting’s discovery ensured spirited bidding which saw it top its high estimate, selling for $58,000
